cloud and convective activity through the Pilbara and southern Western

Extensive convective clouds are evident over the tropics from the Kimberley to
Cape York Peninsula, and over the Coral Sea. 

Mille level cloud with embedded convective cumulus clouds can be seen across
Pastoral and central areas of south Australia extending into western NSW to the
southeast corner of the continebt over the Australian Alps. 

Some remnant convective activity remains off the coast of New South Wales along
a trough that extends to a low in the Tasman Sea. 

The rest of the country is mostly cloud free apart from areas of low level cloud
along the southern and eastern coasts of the country.
